Faster, more secure networks and near-zero latency are the hallmarks of 5G. It improves AR and VR implementations' latency, which is critical for providing a practical and seamless experience.

FREMONT, CA:  Applications for Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) have been available for a while, and each year one witnesses more advancements and innovative use cases.The top AR and VR technologies to watch in 2021 are as follows.

AR Glasses

While the technology appears to be in its infancy—at least to a general global audience —more technology companies are entering the race. Many compelling use cases exist for a product with these characteristics, allowing people to receive and display crucial details on the lens of their glasses. Factory staff, for example, could see useful results from the computers they deal on, and surgeons could get a quick rundown of their patients' health status—all without having to use their fingertips. The limit of holding the smartphone to leverage AR capabilities is no more. The AR headset development is here to stay, and 2021 will drive it even further.

Remote Expert Assistance

In a nutshell, remote expert assistance uses AR to enable product specialists and technicians to instruct consumers experiencing a particular problem visually.  It is a new technology that is found to be much more effective now that one has to stay at home; a situation in which commuting and delivering face-to-face services becomes difficult. Thanks to an AR solution, the technician will guide one through the steps remotely, quicker, noticing what one sees, and make notes on the board, such as where each cable should be placed or which screws to remove. One of the things that will get better in 2021 and a post-coronavirus environment is remote assistance powered by AR.

5G

Faster, more secure networks and near-zero latency are the hallmarks of 5G. It improves AR and VR implementations' latency, which is critical for providing a practical and seamless experience.AR and Mixed Reality (MR) experiences prosper from 5G's increased bandwidth. For example, cloud computing and increased connectivity could be used in remote assistance situations, indoor AR navigation, or even the introduction of AR/MR headsets. This year, 5G adoption and spending rose, and this trend will continue in 2021.
